Fall 2021 Adult Growth Opportunities

Classes begin on Sunday, September 12

GENESIS, THE BEGINNING  - This class, taught by biology  teacher, Randy Gehman, will look at what the Scriptures have to say about the creation of the world, man’s origin, dinosaurs,  Noah’s flood, the age of the earth, and more!  The book of Genesis is the foundation upon which the entire Bible rests.  All major biblical doctrines begin with this book including marriage, sin, death, salvation, etc.  Not surprisingly therefore, it is also the book of the Bible which today is under the most vigorous attack.  It is important that Christians have a firm understanding of these opening, foundational chapters of Genesis.            Location | Gym


HONEST CONVERSATIONS ABOUT MARRIAGE -  Marriage is a gift from God, but sometimes it can be frustrating.  It grows and changes as we work together to honor the Lord. This class will touch on the changing seasons within marriage including some of the following topics: parenting, self-care, communication, boundaries, giftings, and personality. Join us as we dig into God's Word for truth that will guide us and shape us for His kingdom. We'll wrap each week up with "inquiring minds want to know” where questions will be open for discussion. Led by Dean and Lori Landis. Location | D1


FINDING YOUR PLACE IN CHURCH LIFE

God created us all for a purpose. To help us accomplish our purpose, He gifted us with spiritual gifts and talents so that we can use them for His glory. Discovering your spiritual gifts is just the beginning. After identifying your spiritual gifts, understanding which abilities complement your personality, and connect you to your passion and life experiences will enable you to better understand where God is taking you. This class will include a spiritual gifts analysis, a skills analysis, and a personality assessment in discerning how God has created you and how He wants you to find your place in the church. Led by Pastor Joe Burchill. Location | C3


COFFEE & CONVERSATIONS FOR YOUNG PROFESSIONALS

Bring your favorite caffeinated beverage (or decaffeinated...but why? lol) and join us for food and fellowship as we talk about the three Cs: careers, connections, and Christ! In a world that demands much of our time and talents, how do we keep Christ at the center of it all, as we navigate our careers and all the connections that come along with it.  We'll cover topics like career pathing, difficult conversations, managing up, developing meaningful relationships at work, fostering your talents, and SO much more. Whether you're in business, education, non-profit, the trades, or other sector, all are welcome! We're gathering to support and pray for one another, as well as have some stimulating conversation...well, that's what caffeine does-right?  Led by Shawn & Katie Sandoe. Location | Pastor King's office
